FMSHS Yearbook jeopardized


For the first time in the FHS
school history, the yearbook may
not make budget. Although the
all-student staff has produced the
pages, books and advertising
space have not been purchased.
To produce the Frostproof
Middle Senior High School, the
yearbook staff must raise a mini-
mum of $22,000 in advertising
and book sales, with $18,000 as
the initial deposit to begin pro-
duction. At this point, the year-
book staff needs $7000 to pay the


remainder of the deposit, and a
grand total of $11,000 to pay for
the entire book.
Each year, the yearbook staff
places a tentative order for 300
yearbooks, with a final book
count reported to the publisher
at the end of March. To date, only
140 yearbooks have been pur-
chased. Even at the minimum of
300 yearbooks, FMSHS is not sell-
ing nearly what other schools of
similar size sell. As the yearbook
is a non-profit publication, there


is no money being made off the
sale of books. In fact, based on
the publication costs, each year-
book in 'that 300-book order
should cost $70. With the 140
yearbooks sold, each yearbook
should cost $160. During this
year's sale, yearbooks averaged
$50. Raising the price may be the
financially responsible thing to
do, but in an area such as Frost-
proof, should a yearbook cost
$80 to $100 like in other schools?
Normally, the cost of a yearbook

is offset by the purchase of adver-
tising and personal space. How-
ever, advertising sales have been
increasingly difficult to obtain
and are drastically down this
year. For whatever the reason,
businesses in the community are
not buying advertising space to
support the high school year-
book.
The yearbook staff has done a
wonderful job producing pages.
In fact, they have surpassed the
first Herff-Jones deadline by


nearly 50 pages. The staff of 12
young ladies has done an amaz-
ing job. They have made posters,
reminder cards, and phone calls.
They have visited businesses and
distributed yearbook order
forms. At this point, if the year-
book does not sell and advertis-
ing/personal space is not pur-
chased, then the 2006 Yearbook
may not make budget.

AARP nomination deadline approaches


St. Petersburg, FL The dead-
line for nominating your business
for AARP Best Employers for work-
ers 50+ is fast approaching.
Employers that offer workplace
practices and policies that greatly
benefit these workers are encour-
aged to apply. Now entering its
sixth year, the Best Employers
search honored 50 employers last
year, including Florida winners
Brevard Public Schools in Viera
and Lee Memorial Health System
in Ft. Myers.
AARP's landmark report, "The
Business Case for Workers Age
50+," found that companies'
investments in experienced work-
ers translate into a tremendous
plus for their businesses. As the
oldest of the boomers turn 60 in
2006, attracting and retaining
skilled workers will become
increasingly critical for employers
who seek to retain a competitive
edge.
Especially appealing to 50+
workers are, training and learning
opportunities, flexible work
schedules, and continuing oppor-
tunities for advancement "It is
imperative for Florida employers
to retain 50+ workers if they wish
to be competitive," said AARP
Florida State Director Bentley Lip-
scomb. "It will not be long before
the baby boomers start to retire.
When companies maintain strong
and positive relationships with
older workers, they spend less


money on recruiting, training and
monitoring new employees. Obvi-
ously, this has a strong impact on
a business's bottom line."
The 2004 Bureau of Labor Sta-
tistics Current Population Survey
reported 1,089,000 Florida
employees were between 55 and
64 years old. There were also
332,000 employees who were
65+.
AARP invites employers to
apply for the Best Employer desig-
nation by submitting an applica-
tion describing their exemplary
practices for 50+ workers. A con-
sulting firm provides a preliminary
ranking of the applicants, then a
panel of nine outside judges eval-
uates the applications. The judges'
rankings, along with the consul-
tant's evaluations, lead to the final
rankings. The awardees will be
honored at a prestigious recogni-
tion dinner in Chicago on Sept. 21
followed by a "Best Practices and
Solutions" forum on Sept. 22.
Companies, nonprofit organi-
zations and educational institu-
tions with 50 or more employees
are eligible to apply. Winners
range from well known corpora-
tions such as Principal Financial
Group, to smaller companies
such as Stanley Consultants, Inc.,
and universities such as Massa-
chusetts Institute of Technology.
Applications are now on-line
for the 2006 Best Employer com-
petition. Employers are invited to


visit www.aarp.org/bestemploy-
ers. The 2006 application will seek
to determine employers of choice
by, among other things, highlight-
ing those who provide flexible
work options, operate creative
recruitment programs and utilize
their retired workforce to fill tem-
porary positions. The deadline for
applications is March 20, 2006.
AARP is a nonprofit, nonparti-
san membership organization
that helps people 50+ have inde-
pendence, choice and control in
ways that are beneficial and
affordable to them and society as
a whole. We produce AARP The


Magazine, published bimonthly;
AARP Bulletin, our monthly news-
paper; AARP Segunda Juventud,
our bimonthly magazine in Span-
ish and English; NRTA Live &
Learn, our quarterly newsletter for
50+ educators; and our website,
www.aarp.org. AARP Foundation
is an affiliated charity that provides
security, protection, and empow-
erment to older persons in need
with support from thousands of
volunteers, donors, and sponsors.
We have staffed offices in all 50
states, the District of Columbia,
Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin
Islands.

Enjoy egg

I love eggs. Eggs are one of
nature's wonder foods. They
are high in protein. They con-
tain Omega 3 fatty acids and
choline -- substances neces-
sary for proper brain function.
A whole egg only has,
about 75 calories -- and those
calories are packed with nutri-
ents.
Eggs store well -- they can
be safely refrigerated for up to
a month. They are an inexpen-
sive form of protein.
According to the USDA,
eggs provide protein, vitamin
A, riboflavin and other vita-
mins and minerals. The yolk
contains all the fat, saturated
fat and cholesterol in an egg,
In 1 large egg, the yolk con-
tains 5 grams total fat, 2
grams saturated fatty acids,
213 milligrams cholesterol
and 60 calories. The egg
white contains 15 calories.
A few years ago, when the
dangers of high cholesterol |
levels first made the news,
eggs got a bad reputation,
since they are high in choles-
terol. However, since
researchers first start study- a
ing the connection between
cholesterol levels and heart
disease, the\ found that
lifestyle factors affect choles-
terol levels more than diet. The
human body produces choles-
terol, as part of natural body
function. You need some cho-
lesterol to live, but too much
can be bad for your health.
Exercise helps reduce cho-
lesterol level. Smoking ciga-
rettes has been linked to
increases in cholesterollevels.
So a cigarette smoked after
breakfast may do more to raise
your "bad" cholesterol than the
eggs you ate did.
For the healthiest choice of
eggs look for eggs that come
from chickens that are given no
hormones or antibiotics. These
eggs cost a few cents more per
egg, but if you are concerned
about your family's health, it
may be worth the expense. If
you're interested in animal
rights, you can also choose eggs
that come from "cage free"
farms.
Hard boiled eggs can make a
nutritious snack and they are
easily portable. According to
the USDA guidelines, hard
boiled eggs may be safely
stored in the refrigerator for up
to a week.
However, when you boil and
egg, you reduce the egg shell's
natural ability to keep out bac-
teria. Boiling the egg creates
tiny holes in the shell. Bacteria
can enter the egg through those
tiny holes.

Special to INI/USDA
Use the Food Guide Pyramid to help you eat better every day the Dietary Guidelines way.
Start with plenty of breads, cereals, rice and pasta; vegetables; and, fruits. Add two to three
servings from the milk group and two to three servings from the meat group. Each of these
food groups provides some, but not all, of the nutrients you need. No one food group is
more important than another for good health you need them all. Go easy on the fats, oils
and sweets the foods in the small tip of the Pyramid.


Eggs outside, it's much safer to
use the plastic kind. Hardboiled
eggs do not fare well outdoors,
especially in the Florida heat.
If your children bring home
hardboiled eggs from an Easter
Egg hunt, it's best to. throw
them away. You have no way to
know how long those eggs
were left out in the heat.
An added bonus to using
plastic eggs for egg hunts is that
plastic eggs do not start to smell
if you don't happen to- find all
the Easter eggs that were hid-
den.
The USDA offers the follow-
ing tips for the safe handling of
eggs:
Only buy refrigerated eggs
with clean, unbroken shells.
It is best not to wash eggs
before storing or using them.
Washing is a routine part of
commercial egg processing and
the eggs do not need to be
rewashed.
At home, keep raw eggs in
their original carton on an
inside shelf in the refrigerator
(40 degrees Fahrenheit). For
best quality, use within five'
weeks after bringing them
home.
.* Keep hard-cooked eggs (in
the shell or peeled) in the refrig-
erator (40 F). Use within one
week after cooking.
Most eggs sold today are
infertile; roosters are not
housed with the laying hens.
Shell color depends on the
breed of the hen. Yolk color


depends on the feed the hen
consumes. There is.no nutri-
tional difference between fertile
and infertile eggs, brown- and,
white-shelled eggs, or pale or
dark egg yolks.
Wash hands, utensils,
equipment, and work areas
with hot, soapy water before
and after they come in contact
with eggs and egg-containing
foods.
Remove only the number
of eggs needed from the carton
and return the carton to the
refrigerator.
Cook eggs until the white
is completely firm and the yolk
begins to thicken but is not
hard. Scrambled eggs should be
cooked until no visible liquid
remains. Fried eggs should be
cooked on both sides or in a
covered pan.
Take care when preparing
egg-containing foods that are
not cooked or are only lightly
cooked before serving, such as
ice cream, eggnog, mayon-
naise, caesar salad, hollandaise
.sauce or b6arnaise sauce. Only
use recipes that start with a
stirred egg custard base that is
first cooked to 160 degrees
Fahrenheit.
If a recipe calls for adding
raw eggs to a previously cooked
dish, the dish must be cooked
further until it reaches 160
degrees Fahrenheit.
When preparing any
recipe that contains eggs, resist


A
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken

the temptation to taste-test the
mixture during preparation.
Egg-containing foods should be
thoroughly cooked before eat-
ing.
When preparing and serv-
ing eggs and egg-rich foods,
keep them out of the refrigera-
tor no more than two hours
total, not including cooking
time.
If hot egg-rich foods are
not going to be served immedi-
ately after cooking, put the hot
foods into shallow containers
and refrigerate at once so they
will cool quickly.
For information about egg
safety, call USDA's Meat and
Poultry Hotline. The national
toll-free number is 800-535-
4555. In the Washington, D.C.,
area, call (202) 720-3333.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise plan,
consult your doctor. This is
especially important-if you are
on any prescription drugs.
Some drugs interact badly with
foods that would otherwise be
considered "healthy."
